Friday Caps Clips: A Couple More Award Nominations

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Be sure to tune in for Japers' Rink Radio tomorrow morning at 10:00 (or download the show thereafter) with special guest Dan Steinberg - sure to be morbidly entertaining.
  • Professor Masisak grades the goalies and suits. [CSN Washington]
  • Alex Ovechkin was voted a Ted Lindsay Award finalist (formerly the Lester B. Pearson Trophy, which Ovechkin has won in each of the past two seasons). [Capitals]
  • George McPhee was named a finalist for the inaugural General Manager of the Year award (catchy title). [Capitals, Puck Daddy, StC]
  • Speaking of GMs, a look at each current general manager's record. [TheScore.com]
  • Eric Fehr was one of the playoffs' best third-liners (which would be consistent with his regular season). [Puck Prospectus]
  • ReCAPSule: Joe Corvo. [Capitals]
  • Catching up with John Carlson and Karl Alzner in Hershey. [Caps Today]
  • And the Caps Calder goes to... well, click to find out. [RtR]
  • Did Ted Leonsis really "[throw] Bruce Boudreau into a fiery pit" with this blog post? [Elliotte Friedman]
  • Speaking of Gabby, he at last night's Nats game. [TwitPic, TwitPic]
  • Jose Theodore and Mike Green are good dudes. [CSN Washington]
  • Stretch gets the star treatment. [StC]
  • Stefan Della Rovere is headed to Hershey (presumably to skate with the Black Aces). [Colts]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1994, "Don Beaupre became the Washington Capitals' All-Time leader in playoff wins, with his 18th, in a 4-2 win over the Rangers, in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. Beaupre passed Pete Peeters, who had won 17 playoff games for the Caps." Olie Kolzig came along a few years later and bested Beaupre's mark, ending up with 20 playoff wins, which is ten more than Semyon Varlamov currently has.
  • Finally, happy 31st birthday to Lawrence Nycholat and happy 54th birthday to Tony Cassolatto.
